Brock Beat: Lesnar 'Quits' WWE, Paul Heyman Returns

Paul Heyman (left) came out on WWE RAW and told the world former UFC champion Brock Lesnar was quitting WWE.

There was no Brock Lesnar on WWE Monday Night RAW as he "quit' the promotion in storyline, announced by Lesnar's friend and someone that has dabbled in MMA the past few years: Paul Heyman.

Lesnar was asked to be at the show, but instead sent his "legal representative" in Heyman, a longtime wrestling personality who has been one of the former UFC champion's closest friends since his early WWE days. After cutting a promo on the virtues of what Lesnar brought to the table, Heyman read a prepared statement from Lesnar where he quit the promotion.

Read more about what happened and Heyman's recent MMA business after the jump.

Of course, he is signed for a year and will return in August for one of WWE's biggest pay-per-views of the year in Summer Slam, where he is expected to face Triple-H. He attacked HHH on last week's show, "breaking" his arm and setting up the angle.

Heyman co-authored Lesnar's 2011 autobiography and did some work with both Strikeforce and Shane Carwin in the past on various promos and segments.

In case you missed it earlier, we brought you a clip of the Gracie brothers breaking down Lesnar's kimura.
